Towering Above the Rest: Why You Should Create a Media Kit

Do you have a successful or newly launched business? If so you’ll probably want some press attention. So how do you go about getting it? 

One way is to design a media kit so that anyone who wants to learn about your brand has the basic facts and details.

So what is a media kit? How do you get about creating a media kit and what specific details should you include? Here’s everything you need to know.

What Is a Media Kit? 

A media kit is a series of promotional materials. It includes a short summary of your brand, including basic details on what your business or content does, who it reaches, and the types of partnership opportunities you are looking for.

While the goal of the media kit is to get press coverage and influencer partnerships, it is also important that a business uses it to identify its target audience.

The idea is that the media kit contains everything that brands need to know whether or not they should partner with you, or what journalists need in order to quote you as a source or write about your company. The media kit is often the most meaningful, sometimes the only, introduction to the brand a journalist, media, and influencers see.    

Also, don’t forget it should include a personal bio and a professional headshot so that brands know the person behind the business. 

Digital Media Kits 

These days, media kits are also used by bloggers and influencers, who provide brands and journalists with additional insights into their blogs and social media presences (essentially, additional insight into their business).

You will want to leverage Instagram, Facebook ads, YouTube, and content marketing to put your brand in front of the most amount of people.

A digital media kit is a document or package containing important information about a business/brand. It will be shared with influencers or other non-traditional media.

Whether you are a social media influencer looking to work with brands, or a brand looking to partner with influencers (or anything in between), a media kit is useful for outlining the types of collaborations you are looking for, the services you offer, and the overall audiences with whom you are working.  

If you have a standard media or a digital media kit you will want it to look professional at all times. One of the ways you can do that is to remove background from an image using Adobe tools.  

A Media Kit Is A Must     

What is a media kit? The goal is to promote the business and reach out to a wider audience. But more often than not, they are used for brand outreach, especially if your business idea is new to the public.

It is essentially a kit that has everything that journalists and publishers will need in order to do a story about you, or the brand/partner will need in order to work with you.
